ELES released the 'Sixties Vibe' collection late last year as a part of their Spring Look.
'This look is all about vibrant youthful eyes, with soft velvety shades of Aubergine and Purple. A strong eye look teamed with a flawless complexion and nude lip creates a modern take on a Bridgette Bardot style of beauty.'
I was kindly gifted these beautiful products from ELES along with a dreamy head garland and glam shades to help channel the inner Bridgette Bardot.
Today, I am bringing you a makeup look that is perfect for both the autumn and winter seasons. The 'Sixties Vibe' look is one that is versatile and very complementing to most skin & hair tones. I was sent 4 products in the 'Sixties Vibe' collection; Debutante Quad Shadow, Plum Crazy Dimensional Cake Liner, Coral Sun Mineral Blush, Nude Micro Bubble Lipstick.
The ethereal model featured for this 'Sixties Vibe' Makeup Look is Sophie. Backstory. Sophie is from The Netherlands. Sophie and I have been pen friends and 'real life' friends for more than 8 years now. Mr W and I were lucky enough to have Sophie stay with us in May whilst she travelled Australia.
Sophie is a self-admitted novice when it comes to makeup and its application. Therefore, we played around with some useful techniques and go-to looks that she can re-create on her side of the world :) I found the ELES 'Sixties Vibe' Look suited Sophie's colour palette perfectly. The purple and aubergine tones made her warm brown eyes pop. The nude lipstick was a favourite of Sophie's as she likes to keep her makeup simple and wants her lips to appear more full.

FACE: I began by priming the face and creating a flawless base for the makeup look. Although it's recommended to apply eye makeup before foundation (to avoid fallout) I did start with the base and took extra care when applying multiple shadows. If all else fails, a quick tidy up with some concealer under the eyes will fix it. Gentle contouring with a matte bronzer helped bring shape to the face. I used the ELES Colour Tides Mineral Shimmering Powder applied to cheekbones to create a highlight and finished the face by setting with the ELES Mineral Powder Foundation, both products previously reviewed on Profound Feline can be seen HERE.
EYES: Using the ELES Debutante Shadow Quad Palette.
Step 1. Begin by applying the second darkest shade (pale purple shimmer) along the eye lid, pat the colour gently and then blend edges to soften.
Step 2. Apply the darkest shade (deep aubergine matte) in the outer corner of the eye blending up into a V-shape and into the crease line. Build the colour slowly, concentrating colour on the outer of the eye. Blend the edges well to soften and "smoke out" the look.
Step 3. Apply the second lightest shade (grey taupe shimmer) beneath the lower lashes. I applied to the outer 2/3 of the bottom lash line to create a more "open-eyed" appearance.
Step 4. Apply the lightest shade (subtle light pink shimmer) on the inner corner of the eye near the tear duct and beneath the lower lashes (about 1/3 of the way in) furthermore opening up the eye area - a great tip for people with smaller looking eyes. Sweep a small amount under the brows to highlight and add extra dimension.
For Sophie's brows I used 'Omega' eye shadow from MAC with an angled eye brush. I find it is great for blondes and light brunettes as it is ash toned and very build-able. ELES also have numerous shades of brow pencils and powders available HERE. I have previously reviewed the Brow Blender on Profound Feline. The full review of the ELES Brow Blender Pencil can be seen HERE.
EYES: ELES Dimensional Cake Liner in Plum Crazy
Step 1. Using a wet liner brush pick up some colour from the left side of the duo (deep burgundy matte) and press into the upper lash line tapering out to create a soft wing in the outer corner of the eye.
Step 2. Using the same brush (no need to re-wet as it is applied dry) take the shimmery deep purple shade on the right of the duo and press into the line for added sparkle.
I completed the eye look with 2 luscious coats of BENEFIT's They're Real Mascara to the top lashes focusing on lifting the outer lashes to add more to the 'cat-eyed' look. I kept the lower lashes bare to again help open up the eye area and create a more wearable daytime look.
CHEEKS: ELES Mineral Blush in Coral Sun
Using a blush brush apply Coral Sun Mineral Blush to the apples of the cheeks, creating a beautiful natural glow to the skin. I find it helps to add blush as almost a final step in a makeup look. This way you can adjust the depth of colour you want according to your eye makeup / lipstick colours.
LIPS: ELES Micro Bubble Lipstick in Nude
Apply Nude Micro Bubble Lipstick to the lips for a soft and full pout. I applied one coat, blotted with tissue, and applied another coat, achieving a matte finish.
Sophie working the accessories! I am in love with the rose head garland :)
Another ELES feature. On Sophie's nails she is wearing 'Peppermint Cream' from the newly launched ELES Brighton Collection.
Peace, love & serenity.
We hope you enjoyed this look:)
Liefde "love" and kisses from Sophie and I to you!
